I have a passion for notebook and stationary in general. This passion takes me sometimes to visit blogs covering reviews of this type of items.
I recently came across this article on famous men’s pocket notebooks.
My favorite part was the description of Thomas Jefferson’s notebook made up of ivory leaves on which he took notes with pencil [notes about the weather, plants, geography, etc]; at the end of the day Jefferson transfered the notes on “paper” notebooks. He would then erase the ivory plates to make them ready for the following day.
I absolutely love this “notebook”!

I found it at Target.
Pictured below are two mechanical pencils with fat 5mm leads. I bought the orange in Florence, Italy. The blue one is by Levenger and has yellow drylighter leads.
